Antec PERFORMANCE TX640B Computer Case 400W Power Supply

eVGA Geforce 6600GT 128MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16

AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Venice (OC'ed to 2.0)

OCZ Gold Series 1GB DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel

Seagate Barracuda 80GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache Serial ATA150

NEC Black IDE DVD Burner Model ND-3540A

Microsoft Windows XP HOME Edition

Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound

Upgrade to Windows XP Pro SP2, Home is terrible!
Anyone disagree with that?

Go with the Asus A8N SLI Deluxe they have gotten the best reviews and they can run in SLi if you decide to get another video card
